Cannot remove filter from my bosch wfb 4001 washing machine

I can unscrew the cap, but only the cap itself comes off - how do I get the filter out? the washing machine does not drain so I'm trying to figure out wether something is stuck in the filter or if its a problem with the pump? any suggestions much appreciated!

    I have already looked online at videos of people removing the filter - they unscrew the black cap and then remove - there is a white plastic cylinder attached to the cap (assume filter?), however for me only the black cap comes off. has the cap snapped off? or is there some other way of getting the filter out?

    just posting this in case anyone else has thsi problem. So....turns out the cap had become detached from the rest of the filter. Two flat-head screwdrivers used to prise out the filter. As suspsected a few things blocking the pump so removed them, gave the filter a good clean, reattached the cap to the filter and reinserted. I ran the machine on a quick wash and it drained fine.

SOURCE: unable to unscrew cap on filter on washing machine

You should be unscrewing anti-clockwise to remove it, if it will not come out, then there is probably somethiung stuck in the filter preventing it from pulling out.

Try moving it from side to side as you are unscrewing and pulling.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Spares Suppliers
You will need to type into your search engine/web browser '(make model number) washer spares' and you should be presented with a number of sources from which you can order. Alternately you could try telephone directories for spares suppliers but I would think the former would be more successful.
If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

well, seems to me that you are using too much juice for the circuit, which implies a SERIOUS issue with the machine. perhaps the motor is locked, or something in control panel is shorted out?

At the bottom of the machine on the front, there is a plastic cover (remove by turning the plastic screws a quarter turn anti-clockwise and pull off cover). The filter is behind this cover on the left hand side. It is unscrewed by hand anti-clockwise. Tucked into the plastic cover, you should also find the spanner to adjust the feet on the washing machine. good luck and rate me....
